lyrics

I can share your wave
But I cannot make you wait
I can move too fast
But I can’t make it last

But the strangers down in the market
The strangers painting a part of it
Bone blue on moon side
Of this old world in a vast tide

Oh, how we love ourselves
In speaking of all our wealth
If not for this growing crowd
Who are we playing too loud

As strangers asking for sympathy
Strangers broken with all the trees
Down burn like a moon heart
In a sky sounding old dark

Now the light outside
Is teaching me how to hide
From the only way to escape
Without burning away

And the strangers clap in the meadow
The strangers praising the shadows
That fall down like old books
‘Bout chances had and never took
Oh, strangers naked before me
Strangers asking the war to be
Less pain and more time
Oh, more body and less mind
